Market_Desc: · Students· Instructors About The Book: The text explains the basics of inorganic chemistry with a primary emphasis on facts; then uses the student's growing factual knowledge as a foundation for discussing the important principles of periodicity in structure, bonding and reactivity. This book contains separate chapters on improved treatment of atomic orbitals and properties such as electro negativity, novel approaches to the depiction of ionic structures, nomenclature for transition metal compounds, quantitative approaches to acid-base chemistry, Wade's rules for boranes and carboranes, the chemistry of major new classes of substances including fullerenes and silenes plus a chapter on the inorganic solid state.
General chemistry textbooks are usually lengthy and present chemistry to the student as an unconnected list of facts. In inorganic chemistry, emphasis should be placed on the connections between valence shell electron configuration and the physical and chemical properties of the element. Basic Principles of Inorganic Chemistry: Making the Connections is a short, concise book that emphasises these connections, in particular the chemistry of the Main Group compounds. With reference to chemical properties, Lewis Structures, stoichiometry and spider diagrams, students will be able to predict or calculate the chemistry of simple polyatomic compounds from the valence shell configuration and will no longer be required to memorise vast amounts of factual chemistry. This book is ideal for students taking chemistry as a subsidiary subject as well as honours degree students.
Basic Concepts of Inorganic Chemistry is thoroughly revised and designed as a student text to meet the needs of the students preparing for various competitive examinations. Each concept and principle is unfolded systematically, reflecting the vast experience, command and authority of the author on the subject. The subject has been explained using basic principles that make things easy to understand and absorb both for beginners as well as advanced learners. Each chapter is followed by graded multiple choice questions (the core of the competitive exams) based on concepts, principles and applications, providing the student with necessary recapitulation and ensuring speed and accuracy.
Explains the basics of inorganic chemistry with a primary emphasis on facts; then uses the student′s growing factual knowledge as a foundation for discussing the important principles of periodicity in structure, bonding and reactivity. New to this updated edition: improved treatment of atomic orbitals and properties such as electronegativity, novel approaches to the depiction of ionic structures, nomenclature for transition metal compounds, quantitative approaches to acid–base chemistry, Wade′s rules for boranes and carboranes, the chemistry of major new classes of substances including fullerenes and silenes plus a chapter on the inorganic solid state.
This popular and comprehensive textbook provides all the basic information on inorganic chemistry that undergraduates need to know. For this sixth edition, the contents have undergone a complete revision to reflect progress in areas of research, new and modified techniques and their applications, and use of software packages. Introduction to Modern Inorganic Chemistry begins by explaining the electronic structure and properties of atoms, then describes the principles of bonding in diatomic and polyatomic covalent molecules, the solid state, and solution chemistry. Further on in the book, the general properties of the periodic table are studied along with specific elements and groups such as hydrogen, the 's' elements, the lanthanides, the actinides, the transition metals, and the "p" block. Simple and advanced examples are mixed throughout to increase the depth of students' understanding. This edition has a completely new layout including revised artwork, case study boxes, technical notes, and examples. All of the problems have been revised and extended and include notes to assist with approaches and solutions. It is an excellent tool to help students see how inorganic chemistry applies to medicine, the environment, and biological topics.
A comprehensive introduction to inorganic chemistry and, specifically, the science of metal-based drugs, Essentials of Inorganic Chemistry describes the basics of inorganic chemistry, including organometallic chemistry and radiochemistry, from a pharmaceutical perspective. Written for students of pharmacy and pharmacology, pharmaceutical sciences, medicinal chemistry and other health-care related subjects, this accessible text introduces chemical principles with relevant pharmaceutical examples rather than as stand-alone concepts, allowing students to see the relevance of this subject for their future professions. It includes exercises and case studies.
The reading journey of this book starts with very important phenomenon in inorganic chemistry known as the Trans effect. The Trans effect then leads to a very fascinating discovery that changed the whole world. That was the discovery of the anti-cancer drug. The story of its invention is really interesting. This will really trigger the minds of students that how inventions are made. This will show you how one invention leads path to the other. This book introduces the work of Nobel Prize winners and scientist who dedicated their whole life for the sake of chemistry. Henry Taube was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on complexes & outer and inner sphere reaction mechanism. This book introduces his work. Rudolf A. Marcus received Nobel Prize for his work on redox reactions in complexes. This book discusses the basic principles of redox reactions in complexes. Transition metal complexes plays a fundamental role in three important areas. (1) Bioinorganic chemistry (2) Medicinal chemistry (3) Industrial chemistry. The study of the mechanism helps in designing new inorganic materials, new inorganic catalysts, and new inorganic medicines and for understanding the biological processes. This is a simple book discussing basic principles of inorganic reaction mechanisms. Further, we have provided minor information about basic bioinorganic reactions, nuclear reactions and the chain reaction mechanism. The phenomenon such as acid rain has also been discussed. The last chapter classifies the reactions of metal complexes. Hope this book will be useful for science graduates and post graduates and also for the engineering students.
This book is both a review of current research and an undergraduate textbook for inorganic chemistry at university level. In university undergraduate lectures, basic concepts are mainly explained and added examples of frontier research are optional. However, in many cases, frontier research is more interesting for students than basic studies. This book is aimed at undergraduates in inorganic chemistry. Each author introduces or reviews "frontier research topics" of inorganic coordination chemistry. Additionally, "basic concepts," as found in textbooks on this subject, indicate application examples of "frontier research topics."
